The list blockages have at least one benefit: they cause us all to pause and think, "is this response necessary?" However-- and I know this has come up before, and been shot down for various reasons--- Why not increase the daily limit? During the many times of low traffic it wouldn't make any difference (or would it? I don't know how list-management works....), and during the few times of high traffic it would prevent blockages. Thus, we subscribers could receive a continuous flow of Pearls of Wisdom , and H.E. the Lord of the Instrumentality could enjoy his Life unimpeded.
